An AES problem? I do have it but it's not loaded. You mention it but don't say what the problem is with AES, so I'm no wiser. He didn't say it was problem, but the LOD distance may be different. LOD= Level Of Detail, like I said it's used by all video games. LOD Distance = The distance at which cer...

That is nothing new, and in fact is a part of every video game, not just flight sim.

I just had a thought, if the capitol is gone maybe the tax increases we are facing will be gone to.
I know, wishful thinking.

Hey Paavo, FTX left out the flippin' capitol building. You'd think that a HUGE icon in Olympia would be included. They did decide to put in two Port cranes, so I can't figure that one out. It's there in the default scenery. But they spruced up Oly a good bit and it has much more of that "O town" fe...

Bought it this week along with the Sibwings Bird Dog. I really like it. The trees and autogen alone are very good. I do have some gripes in regards to Olympia, since it's my hometown but nonetheless, very happy. Be aware it does hit frames hard and I'm running an i7, GTX 260, 6GB of RAM. Bill W's w...

It's the same problem all around the world with FSX and the photosceneries...
You can download plenty of free imagery, run it through resample and have photoscenery. It's not hard, just a lot of work, and the imagery quality is hit and miss.

the light rail that goes to it, animated. IRL, that seems like a waste of money to me, the rail. Anyone see any tracks going South, and WHERE does it drop you off at, on the outside of the parking garage somewhere. Having never rode that rail, does it have a moving sidewalk from that distance so yo...

I don't use FSX so just looking at screenshots, I was thinking it was very much like a slightly more detailed but localized GEX. Instead of covering a country or continent, it covers only a smaller area but you get slightly more detail. I really didn't think it deserved all that hype. The airports ...

I do like the fact they put clear cuts in, my biggest gripe about GEX was the carpet of trees forest, which is very unrealistic. Guess you'd have to live here to really get that and have it bug you. It is better than default, and a nice package, but to me it's not as great as everybody makes it out ...

I just tried the demo, and I don't get why there is so much hype.
It' like a nicer default, but still default, complete with roads running over houses etc.

The people at avsim act like this thing cures cancer.
